Haffner Wind Ensemble
Nicholas Daniel - oboe/director

Sunday 18th February 2018, 3:00pm

Pre-concert talk with the artists at 2:00pm

Venue: John Innes Centre

  • Programme:
  • Beethoven: Rondino in E flat, WoO 25
  • Berio: Sequenza VII for oboe
  • Dvořák: Serenade in D minor, Op.44
  • Mozart: Serenade for 13 winds in B flat, K.361

The members of the Haffner Wind Ensemble are well known as chamber musicians, individual soloists, and principals in the Britten Sinfonia. Here they offer a widely ranging programme, from the lone oboe of Berio's ‘Sequenza VII’, written for the Swiss player Heinz Holliger, to the most richly scored of all Mozart's wind serenades. Dvořák's Op.44 Serenade is in the same tradition as the Mozart, but tinged with the nationalistic mood of the Slavonic Dances he began to write shortly afterwards.
